Tech Stocks Put The Market Under Pressure

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Monday, the 7th of April.

Last week we saw the tech stocks shave 4% off the value of the NASDAQ index in just 3 days and we are seeing further follow-through selling today. Technically the markets have been in strong bull trends for the last 5 years. Historically, very few bull markets have exceeded that length of time. This bull market may or may not be the exception.

There have been several Internet stocks that I have been talking about on this blog, mainly Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) which I have been bearish on, Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), Yelp (NYSE:YELP), and a host of others and they are all in bearish patterns. [Read more...]

Why Major Trends Are Important

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Thursday, the 3rd of April.

Indices

Major Trend : BULLISH
Intermediate Trend : BULLISH

One lesson I learned a long time ago in my trading career was to never fight the trend. Trends tend to persist longer and go further than most expect. Yesterday, the Dow 30 gave a signal that it was once again resuming its upward trend, joining the S&P 500 in a positive trend. The NASDAQ is in a neutral and sideways mode. Watch today’s video to see my upside target levels.

Citibank Fails The Fed Stress Test - See If You Can Spot Why

Hello investors, traders and MarketClub members everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with a look at Citigroup, Inc. (NYSE:C) on Thursday, the 27th of March.

News came out yesterday that the Fed had "stress tested" 30 banks and that 5 of the 30 had failed to pass. While some of the banks were expected to fail and came as no surprise, what was a surprise to the market was the failure of Citigroup, Inc. (NYSE:C).

In the Trade Triangle column of the image below, do you notice anything different about any one particular bank?

As you can clearly see, Citigroup (NYSE:C) has a red monthly Trade Triangle next to its name. That red monthly Trade Triangle kicked in on January 31st and served as a warning to MarketClub members that all was not well at Citigroup. [Read more...]

Are The Markets Just Teasing Us?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Wednesday, the 26th of March.

It would appear as though most of the major indices have just been spinning their wheels and going nowhere fast in the past 4 to 5 weeks as they have all been in a broad trading range. This type of market action can lull investors to complacency, but for me it has always been a wake-up call to pay close attention to the market as something big is going to happen.

As I see it, the market is doing one of two things, it's either building a base to move higher or it's a distribution top – only time will tell which is the correct answer.

One of our members suggested that the Dow 30 could be making an inverse head and shoulders formation. Certainly this is possible, but I need to see a clear breakout to the upside to confirm this formation.

The other concern I have is the damage done to the NASDAQ earlier this week as it fell to a 6-week low. How this particular index closes on Friday is going to be very important in my mind. Again, I will be watching this market very closely for signs of either a continuation of the bullish trend or a top. [Read more...]

2 Troubling Trends For Investors

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Thursday, the 20th of March.

If you have read my posts for any length of time, you will see that I frequently refer to the saying, "the trend is your friend." However in this case, there appear to be two developing trends that will offer some amazing opportunities, but at the same time create some very dangerous times for the planet.

I'm sure like many investors, you are tracking what is going on in the Ukraine and Crimea. I do not view this as a positive, in fact, I think this is a once-in-every-two-generations kind of event and a very negative trend not just for the US and Europe, but for the global community in general.

Bulls or Bears - Who Will Win?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Tuesday, the 11th of March.

The Dow Is Balanced

Looking at the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEX:DJI), you have half of the stocks in a bull trend and the other half in a bear trend, giving a very mixed picture and somewhat neutral look to the Dow 30. The question is, which side is going to win out, the bulls or the bears? As with any market, I will be watching the Trade Triangles for an indication of this index's next move.

Gold Adjusting To New Levels

After rallying over $150 from the lows that were seen in late December, the gold market has gone into a sideways pattern as it begins to readjust to its new trading levels of $1,320 to $1,360. At the moment, it would look like short-term traders should be out of this market and that long-term traders could hold on to long gold positions. I'm still see the Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) moving higher longer-term. [Read more...]

Ukraine or No Ukraine - Are Stocks At A Tipping Point?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Wednesday, the 5th of March.

There's no question about it, Ukraine and Putin have been causing havoc in the world’s markets. While it's easy to get emotional and jump on one side of the market or the other because of the news, that really is no way to trade. The Trade Triangles are free of human emotion and tend to keep you in the big trends and alert you to new trends as they develop.

From an intellectual level, I don't think that Russia is finished with the Crimea or Ukraine. There's going to be a lot of diplomatic talk, but the bottom line is going to be what Putin wants, he is going to get, no matter what the cost. The Chinese have a saying, "May you live in interesting times" and certainly these are more than interesting times.

So what's ahead? It seems that we are almost at a tipping point in some markets and in other markets it would appear as though we are heading into a multi-year bull market. Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) I believe has made a major reversal and has embarked on a multi-year bull market. [Read more...]

It's Tricky Tuesday, So Be Careful

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Tuesday, the 11th of February.

Tricky Tuesdays

What are they and why do they matter? Oftentimes bull and bear markets come to an end on a Tuesday, why is that? It all has to do with momentum. Typically a market builds up momentum over the weekend and that enthusiasm tends to carry over into Monday and early Tuesday trading. This is the same momentum rule I use for the "52-Week New Highs on a Friday" trading strategy.

Rule #1: On a new 52-week high when the market closes at or close to its high on a Friday, buy and go home long for the weekend. [Read more...]

Chart to Watch - Corn Futures (CBOT:ZC.H14.E)

We've asked our friend Jim Robinson of profittrading.com to provide his expert analysis of charts to our readers. Each week he'll be analyzing a different chart using the Trade Triangles and his experience.

Today he is going to take a look at the technical picture of the March Corn Futures (CBOT:ZC.H14.E).

When trading futures with the MarketClub system you use the weekly Trade Triangles to tell trend and the daily Trade Triangles to time the trades.

With the trend up right now in Corn, you can buy on all new green daily Trade Triangles as long as the weekly Trade Triangle stays green.

With the growing season for March Corn Futures (CBOT:ZC.H14.E). just around the corner, there can be a number of weather scares, from too much rain, to not enough rain, any of which can drive the price of Corn higher.

Right now there looks to be great upside potential in Corn making this an excellent Chart to Watch!

Thanks,
Jim Robinson

A Big Win For Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (NASDAQ:GMCR)

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Thursday, the 6th of February.

Yesterday, the Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) announced it was buying a 10% stake in Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (NASDAQ:GMCR). Under the terms of the deal, Coke will purchase 16.7 million shares in Green Mountain for about $1.5 billion.
